Re: mkIV gti help

they are 18s. and either way my summers are coming back on, but the question is whether to buy these ones, or stick with my stocks you see in the pics and buy new tires (which is the main reason i am looking at wheels). lmao, i just called the guy and turns out they came off his gti and he has a jet...

Re: Torn jeans continued....

I don't understand... first, the fall of the Roman Empire, then slavery, then the Holocaust and Stalin's chistka, then button fly jeans. Who would do this!? Communists. wait... then why do U.S. Army ACUs have button flies????????? b/c 1) they don't really break and in the off chance they do, it can...

Re: Misc Thread VI: Return of the Threadi

ok then, at least a new suspension. that certainly makes the ride nicer. being able to touch a screen for $700 or w/e the price was isnt worth it compared to other things imo. you could buy a nice head unit for much cheaper and it would still sound good and you would save a ton of money for other st...
